The Los Baños Science Community (LBSC) is one of four science communities established by the Department of Science and Technology in accordance with the Presidential Executive Order No. 784 in 1984. The science community concept fosters the spirit of sharing of resources and expertise among research agencies located in Los Baños.  On March 23, 2001 the Los Baños Science Community embarked on strengthening its resource generation activities which prompted its registration with the Securities  and
Exchange Commission making the entity a non stock foundation.

Agencies belonging to the Los Baños Science Community Foundation, Inc. (LBSCFI) have, through the years, accumulated a rich resource of research and development information which may have great national impact. The LBSCFI feels that the National Science and Technology Week, which celebrates in July of each year is an appropriate occasion to grant the awards for outstanding research and development conducted by scientists and development workers in the community. The Award was launched in 1986.
